Isn't that the cutest thing you've ever seen?! This little penguin is for a friend for Christmas. I got the pattern from Lion Brand. They have some great stuff!

marley & me

I've just finished reading Marley & Me, a great memior of author John Grogan's life with his crazy dog Marley. I had my doubts in the beginning, but this book is about so much more than a Labrador with no manners. It's a poignant perspective on his foray into marriage and parenthood. I really loved this book and can't wait to see the movie!

my handiwork

I've been working on lots of gifts for Christmas... I can't show you most of them just in case the recipients follow my blog (ha ha, I'm just deluding myself). I really can't show you because I haven't taken pictures of most of them. :)

Here we go!

I made Donatello for a special person who had a giant THING for TMNT when he was just a little guy.

The snowmen are for my three fellow Kinder teachers at school... I love that I used the same pattern and procedures for each one, but they have individual looks and personalities. Fun!!

I have been one busy little elf... I'm trying to fulfill a commitment to give all of my giftees at least one handmade item this year. Stay tuned for pictures!
